Sacher-torte recipe

Sacher-torte recipe

We wholeheartedly believe that chocolate is the best flavour for a sweet treat. Delicious chocolate may be found in puddings, tarts, and cakes with varying densities. You must try the Sacher-torte, though. Sacher-torte is an Austrian chocolate cake or torte that was supposedly created by Franz Sacher in 1832 in Vienna for Prince Metternich.

Sacher-torte suggestions

It’s a rich chocolate cake sandwiched with a thin layer of apricot jam and topped with a layer of dark chocolate frosting. Whipped cream is included in the serving as well! The cake’s thick batter transforms it into a tart. Use either apricot or plum jam; both work well. You may dress it up with bits of fruit or nuts if you want, but traditionally it’s served as a stunningly basic tart.

Easy preparation for a chocolate treat that tastes everything but. Tea or dinner party? We recommend this Sacher-torte.
